Dear Heloise: My outdoor white resin furniture – a table and four chairs – is badly discolored with mildew and other outdoor elements. How do I clean it? – Mabel Williams, Dolphin, Va.

Try a solution made of:

3/4 cup regular household bleach

1 tablespoon powdered or liquid laundry detergent

1 gallon water

First, apply the cleaning solution to one small area at a time and let sit for five minutes. Follow by scrubbing the area, then rinse well. – Heloise
